It is early enrollment time for GEA (EEL): this program runs April 1- July 15. Any current potential member can fill out an application and have the benefits of representation from GEA. Representation is available for a job-related grievance, parent or student complaint, or any disciplinary action. Support for our members is just a phone call or email away. Access to publications, local member benefits and related services are also guaranteed during EEL.
How does this benefit you as a current member?
We are only as strong as our membership, and our strength lies in our ability to advocate and negotiate for our members. Are you wanting more? There is a monetary incentive for any GEA member who brings in an EEL member. UEA will pay $50.00 and GEA will pay $10.00 to you, just make sure you print your name in the referred by portion on the membership application then get the application to the GEA office either through District mail or dropping it by. We are asking all of you who have potential members on your team/grade level/department to extend an invitation to join us in keeping our profession strong. You are the ones who have the relationships with these people and could help us to become even stronger in our profession. It is always good to let everyone know what the Association does for them and that we are here to help.
Thank you for your help in this endeavor.
